Huge explosion rocks central Oslo

At least one bomb went off outside the offices of Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg and several other government buildings earlier today. The prime minister was unharmed. Just within the hour, there were reports of a second blast in central Oslo, according to Norwegian state broadcaster NRK -- though there has been no confirmation yet.

CNN is reporting a "state of confusion" in the city. Roads into the center of the city have been shut. "It's complete chaos here. The windows are blown out in all the buildings close by," according to one reporter in the area.  

No word yet on any deaths, though eight people have been reported injured. And that number will likely rise. So far, no one has claimed responsibility.
